The Seneca County Sheriff's Office reports that on Saturday evening at 9:06 pm Sheriff's Deputies responded to 4043 County Road 143 Trumansburg in the Town of Covert to investigate a fatal farming accident. Upon arrival to the scene Sheriff's Deputies located 24 year old Nathan Z. Hoover, of Seybolt Road Seneca Falls, entrapped in a piece of farming equipment.

Hoover had been operating a skid loader and had pulled up alongside, and apparently reached out to do something with, a hay baling machine when the front loader was released - coming down and crushing him. Deputies report that Hoover may have accidentally hit the front end loader control with his foot.

Hoover was killed and pronounced dead at the scene by Seneca County Coroner Deborah Kelly. The Seneca County Sheriff's Office was assisted on scene by Trumansburg Ambulance and Fire D epartment.
